Keto strawberry muffins are easy, healthy almond flour muffins with only 4.5 g net carb per muffin. Plus, they are gluten free and dairy free.


If you follow me for a while, you know how much I love baking. It is probably my French roots, french people love baking or at least eating baked goods. So, here I am back with more keto baking recipes that taste amazing.

Keto Strawberry muffins – almond flour muffins

Almond flour is the most delicious keto flour to create moist muffins and cakes. It contains few carbs and lots of fiber that are very satisfying too.


It means that you will feel very full after eating one of those keto strawberry muffins. Let’s say how easy you can make those cute low carb muffins. All you need are 7 simple ingredients.

  • Eggs – I used large eggs
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener of your choice – I love Monk fruit crystal but eryrhtiol and xylitol, in same amount works in this recipe
  • Coconut oil – or melted butter if you prefer, I simply love dairy-free baking
  • Baking powder – or half the amount of baking soda if preferred
  • Diced strawberries – I used fresh strawberries but frozen strawberries would have work well too. First, defrost the strawberries, chop and discard the juice. Frozen strawberries add lots of juice that soften the muffin batter too much. Always defrost before use.
  • Unsweetened almond milk – almond milk is the best milk on the keto diet. It doesn’t contains lactose, the natural sugar from milk. Plus, I am using Almond Breeze and their unsweetened almond milk has no sugar added. You can also use their unsweetened vanilla almond milk in this recipe It has no sugar and adds a lovely vanilla flavor to the keto strawberry muffins

Almond milk

When to eat your keto strawberry muffins ?

You may wonder when it is appropriate to sneak those few 4.5 g net carbs into your day? I recommend two options:

  • Breakfast – this is a very fulfilling muffin delicious with a large almond milk latte. I recommend a large dollop of unsweetened coconut yogurt or whipped cream on top if you are really hungry
  • Snack – if you crave sweet this will fix your sweet tooth in the middle of the day and keep you full until dinner
  • Post work out – those muffins contains 5 grams of protein which is great to reload your muscle mass while enjoying a sugar free muffin


Healthy strawberry muffins – gluten free + paleo

Those keto strawberry muffins definitely tick all the diet requirement. Almond flour is gluten-free which means that those are also delicious gluten free strawberry muffins. I recommend you check the ingredients list of baking powder if your gluten intolerant. Some may contains added gluten. Otherwise, use half amount of baking soda.


How to store your muffins ?

Of course it takes a while to eat 12 of those paleo strawberry muffins. Great news, they freeze perfectly well. First, place the muffins into a zip bag or airtight container. I recommend to freeze the muffins without paper cups. Next, freeze up to 3 months. Finally, defrost at room temperature the day before. You can rewarm your keto strawberry muffins into the oven or toaster.

  • Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line a 12 hole muffin pan with muffin paper or grease with an oil spray if preferred. Set aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together eggs, sugar free sweetener of your choice, unsweetened almond milk and melted coconut oil. Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. If you are using cold eggs straight out from the fridge they will solidify the coconut oil creating oil lumps. Otherwise, use butter to avoid this to happen.
  • Stir in baking powder and almond flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring between to gently incorporate the flour to avoid lumps.
  • Stir in the diced strawberry, if you use frozen strawberry make sure your defrost them before, eliminate any juice to avoid the muffin batter to get too moist.
  • Transfer the muffin batter evenly into the 12 muffins cases. I used a mechanical ice cream scoop to be precise and ensure that each muffins have the same size (and so same amount of carbs per serve).
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins come out clean or with few to no crumbs on it.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan then gently transfer onto a cooling rack and cool for 30 minutes to 1 hour before eating. Be patient, they get the best texture at room temperature.


  • Store in an airtight muffin box for up to 4 days at room temperature.
  • Can be frozen in airtight zip bag, preferably without the paper cup. Defrost the day before at room temperature. Can be toasted or rewarm in oven at 100C.

How to serve your muffins ?

  • Eat plain or top with unsweetened whipped coconut cream (or heavy cream) or unsweetened coconut yogurt.

    • Any milk will work in this recipe. Water should work and heavy cream will be delicious too. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

      • My muffins came out a bit soggy on the inside. I assume it’s liquid from the strawberries. I used fresh and cooked 26 mins. Any tips to avoid this next time?

        • Hello! That could come from the strawberry juice indeed! I always cut mine in very small pieces and you can sprinkle a teaspooon of coconut flour to coat the strawberries. The fiber in coconut flour will soak the liquid and avoid the release of extra juice that make the muffin too moist. I hope this helps, XOXO Carine.

  1. When I figure the carb count it comes to 26.5g total carbs per muffin. The almond flour alone comes to 8g carbs per muffin. Am I doing something wrong? How did you get 5.6g? I was so excited because I made them and they look amazing and I can’t eat them if they have 26.5g of total carbs. 🙁

    • It seems that you have some issue with your nutrition tracker. The almond flour alone in the whole recipe, so for 12 muffins, bings only 40g net carbs. Or the recipe makes 12 muffins so you have to divide this number 12 to see how much net carbs the almond flour brings to each muffins. If you are only looking at almond flour it will be 3.3g net carbs per muffins from the flour. So I can confirm and reassure you that with ALL ingredients, one muffins has 5.6 g carbs including 1.1 g fiber that you takeaway to get the net carbs. That is why 1 muffin contains only 4.5 g net carbs and you are total safe to have one on your keto journey ! Enjoy the keto recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.

    I loved these SO much! I used Rasberries instead, and slightly less “sugar.” Ialso added a sprinkle of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp ginger powder. SO GOOD!
    A little warning as you are baking them…uh, it’s so yummy, you might go over your carb limit for the day just by testing them and licking the batter off your fingers! 😀 Lol.

    Thank you – I was looking for a good replacement for goodies appearing at work–and I think I’ve found it!

    • Thank YOU for such a lovely feeback! I love the raspberry option, very clever to make those even lower in carbs! Enjoy the recieps on the blog, XOXO Carine.

    Hi Carine,

    I made these strawberry muffins and they are sooo yummy. I reheated one and loaded it up with more butter. I couldn’t stop at one. Hahhaa
    I have to admit that my batch of muffins look awful as the muffin tops didn’t brown evenly. But they do taste really good for a keto muffin.
    Highly recommend to all other fans!

    Best regards

    Hi Carine
    I made the strawberry muffins. I brushed the tops with MCT oil and sprinkled with powdered xylitol for an extra little bit of sweetness. They were wonderfully moist and went down a treat. IHighly recommend them to other readers. Kind Regards, Rosine

    • Of course! The recipe will work perfectly with the same amount of any crystal sweetener including sugar. But it means that recipe won’t be sugar free or keto anymore. Same if you swap almond milk for buttermilk but yes recipe will work ust not be as healthy. I would rather recommend an healthy unrefined sugar if you want to keep those healthy. Coconut sugar will be healthier and low GI. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    Can these be made egg free? I absolutely loved them and want to make them for my hubby. What egg replacement should I use?

    • 5 stars
      I actually do use flax egg and it comes out delicious! Three tbsp flaxmeal and about a half cup of water, whisk it and let it sit for about 15 mins and whisk once more. My fiance is obsessed and I have to make these once a week now! Great recipe!

    • I didn’t had great success trying an egg replacement in this recipe – my husband is vegan too ! It wasn’t holding together when I used flax egg Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

  6. I substituted the coconut oil for applesauce and I’m assuming that’s where I went wrong because I was left with a crumbly mess. It’s a shame since the ingredients are so expensive so if you read this, don’t try applesauce!

    • Well the recipe doesn’t suggest apple sauce as an oil replacement. You shouldn’t substitute ingredients if they are not suggested or PM me first next time. I love to help and mae sure recipe works. I would have tell you that applesauce is a no go here. Usually my recipes are high fat low carb so the oil is needed and I never recommend fruit puree. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

  7. Hi Carine! These look great but I can’t have nuts. Can I substitute 2% milk for the almond milk & gluten free Cup for Cup flour for the almond flour? Thank you!

    • Hello! You can use any milk of your choice, lite milk, full fat milk or coconut milk. I would recommend you swap almond flour with sunflower seed flour to keep things low carb keto friendly. Gluten free all purpose flour will make the muffins ‘bulky’. I hope you enjoy them, XOXO Carine

    • That is so clever to make them smaller! This half carbs intake and make you enjoy them even longer.Thanks again for trying my recipes. XOXO Carine.

    Loved these and so easy to make. I especially like that your recipes all have ingredients that most keto kitchens already have. Blueberries are on sale by me this week, I’m thinking that I’ll try it with them next!

    • Thank you so much for this lovely feedback! I am so excited to try them with blueberries next time too. XOXO Carine.

    These are so easy to make and absolutely delicious! Perfect with a cup of coffee (or tea), and a little dab of whipped cream. These are all ingredients I had on hand, and if you follow the keto lifestyle, you probably have them as well. I’ll be making another batch tomorrow to freeze. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

    • They freeze really well, you will love to have a batch on hand to fix a quick sweet craving. Enjoy the recipes around here. XOXO Carine.

    This recipe is easy for my very first keto bakery. I use the recipe to make the blueberry cake instead of muffins. Surprisingly, the taste is extremely delicious.

    • Thank you SO much for the lovely comment. I never thought the recipe will work as a cake too, amazing idea, thanks for sharing with me. XOXO Carine.

  11. I’m fairly new to the keto cooking/baking & clueless on substitutes. Let’s say I’m 1/2cup short on almond flour& the last thing I want to do is get dressed & go to the store. Do I wait until I buy more or can I use something else to fill that little gap?

    • Argh that is pretty much annoying indeed. There is not many keto flour options for baking. You can try 1/4 cup of coconut flour to substitute the 1/2 cup almond flour missing. It will impact the texture for sure but still be delicious. I hope you have that flour on hand otherwise, sunflower seed flour replace 1:1 ratio. Simply grind sunflower seeds into a blender until a powder form. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

    These are a wonderful summer treat! Easy to make and even easier to eat. LOL! These will satisfy my keto pregnancy cravings for the next few weeks. 🙂

    • Hahah I can’t agree more on the second part, I eat 2 of them while taking pictures for the blog. So yum! Thanks again for trying my keto sweet recipes and good luck withthe end of the pregnancy. XOXO Carine

    Looking forward to trying your keto strawberry muffin recipe. I’m not strictly keto but I am low carb. I do muffins now with mostly almond flour some flaxseed and a little bit of millet I use more eggs than you however I use six and for sweetener I use liquid stevia. Today I made some of those muffins with raspberries and a little bit of coffee Justice for slightly unusual taste. They came out great. Love to hear more about your suggestions and recipes

    • Thanks so much for lovely feedback. I love the addition of coffee! Great idea. Talk to you soon on the blog, XOXO Carine
